Performing a MANTIS Factory Reset

You can perform a factory reset if you find corrupted data, experience an unexpected software- or instrument-related error, or accidentally change the MANTIS configuration data. Resetting the MANTIS software will revert it back to the software version that was first installed on your MANTIS instrument. The user data, such as dispense lists, dispense summaries, plate definitions, protocols, and reagent configurations will be preserved. Follow the steps below to reset the MANTIS software.
